County Durham inTouch

12th January 2016

Digital Voice has seen a rise in demand for our courses to learn about using iPads, and is pleased to announce that, thanks to the enthusiasm of participants, a new intermediate version of the inTouch course is being launched.

Three groups of people will take part in this free training, which promotes digital inclusion, helping them to go online, be safe, get in touch with family and friends through social media, and get creative with photos.

Several people are returning for their third course, as we launch our intermediate InTouch course specially developed to meet the needs of this enthusiastic group of carers from the Bishop Auckland area.

Digital Voice has always considered carers a priority group to receive training, as they can find themselves very isolated; feedback shows that, as well as helping develop important skills, the courses are also very beneficial through creating contact with new people and supporting carers to ‘do something for me'.

DV Project Coordinator, Julie Nicholson said ‘We really looking forward to developing the new intermediate course with the carer group as well as offering the chance to a new group of carers and a bespoke beginners course for people of all ages on the Woodhouse Close estate. This is one of the most deprived areas in the UK and our purpose at Digital Voice is to help people find ways to improve their lives and deal with problems by harnessing the power of the internet’.
